We think of the Midwest, with its rivers, lakes, prairies and fields of grain, as the backbone of America.
Agroforestry, a type of farming that incorporates native food-bearing trees into farms, can help regenerate the Midwest.
And the folks behind the Million Hazelnut Campaign believe that planting a million hazelnut trees in the Midwest will go a long way toward cleaning up water pollution, mitigating global warming by drawing down and sequestering carbon, and restoring wildlife habitat.
Want to help? A donation of just $7 will take a hazelnut tree from seed to planting.
